One of the fine supporting cast of the dark-fantasy mystery series the Dresden Files here gets his moment
in the spotlight. When his sister Lara, ruler of the White Court clan, proposes a job for Thomas Raith,
series star Harry Dresden’s vampire half-brother, he can’t refuse because the messenger is Thomas’ former
victim and true love, Justine, and the villain involved is a new client of Harry’s. Thomas has to work
without Harry noticing him, which is difficult, given how sensitive Harry’s gotten. Practiced rogue
Thomas manages somehow in this satisfying novella.
